VOLUME 05 (FINAL)
As the second half of BJC approaches, Kaishin is forced to challenge his limits and distinguish himself amidst top climbers. Upon seeing the climbs demonstrated by his peers, especially his love interest, Toki, a fire ignites in Kaishin once again as he advances towards the final stage of his dreams—to make it to the Olympics! How far will Kaishin reach as he aims for the very top…?
In the run-up to the Climb Star Cup qualifiers, Kaishin has been training like a maniac, watching videos and learning new climbing moves. However, a wrench hits the works in the form of Amane Musha—bouldering champion, recent returnee from the States and self-proclaimed fiancé of Toki…?! Later, Kaishin’s mother finally gets to watch him climb, and reveals the reason for his desperate self-searching all these years…
Miss Kanna has secured an invitation for Kaishin to the Holy Land Convention boot camp… but as an errand boy. That means no lessons, no climbing, and certainly no participating in the camp competition, which awards winners direct entry to the prestigious Climb Star Cup. Nonetheless, Kaishin is determined to make the most of his time there… but he may have inadvertently caused Toki her chance at the competition…?!
Kaishin’s very first trial arrives in the form of a match with the climbing powerhouse, Ariakesukai High School. Their elite climbers pull no punches, and are not afraid to prove it. How will Kaishin fare in his grudge match against Ebisawa? Meanwhile, an intense boot camp for top climbers across Japan is about to begin. Both Toki and Saruhashi have been invited, but is Kaishin going to be left behind this time?
Kaishin Ohno was never the flashy, outdoorsy type. In fact, he was so invisible in middle school that he was nicknamed ‘Stealth’. On the very first day of high school, however, Fate decides to drop him, literally, into the life of bouldering prodigy, Toki Natsume. After spending his youth avoiding all the obstacles that have stood in his way, the irrepressible Toki is going to show Kaishin that there is no wall he cannot overcome, especially the one that will change his life forever!
